Our back garden will need some work, we've known that ever since we moved in. The bricks surrounding the step up to the grass are broken and coming away from each other and it sort of looks pretty untidy and it's also quite dangerous, especially having a toddler who is going to want to run around out there in the summer! And today whilst sweeping up, I ever so slightly moved a sandpit/swimming pool that we have out in the garden which was next to the brick wall and part of the brick wall fell down completely - not good and not safe! And so I think that even though we're saving for hopefully an attic conversion, we may have to somehow look at affording for some work to be done in the garden out the back ready for summer when Ethan will no doubt be very eager to get out there for a run about.
I've always loved the idea of decking and Adam does too so today I hit Pinterest and sites like Arbor Deck looking for some inspiration and modern garden ideas.

Here are some different decking ideas Ive found and love:
